iDrop Dead

UPDATED 17-Aug-2009: MOVED LATEST SCREENSHOTS AND VIDEO CLIPS HERE!

Take a look at our next iPhone & iPod Touch game: iDrop Dead! Let's hope Apple doesn't ban it!

Anyway, Drop Dead started as a flash game back in 2008, and so far around five million people have played its three iterations (original, extended edition and final cut). There are other ragdoll games where you throw around the character and watch its body parts to turn red when it takes damage. In Drop Dead it's the screen that turns red from all the blood the flying body parts will spray! Includes saw blades, bombs and other nice things.

I also set up a Facebook fan page for all the Drop Dead games, if you want to talk about the flash games:

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Drop-Dead/121105491759

iDrop Dead will contain most of the features we've planned to Drop Dead 2 flash, and some more. Scrolling, level goals, worlds with different themes, new music, characters, graphics, unlockables, etc., it's going to be a blast that rips your head off!

Here's a link to Drop Dead: Final Cut (contains a level editor as well):

If everything goes as planned the game should be out in August 2009.

PS. Stickman comes in the first update.

The phone just got that parental lock, and Apple approved nudity, so why cartoon violence wouldn't be allowed?

Anyway, how does one check these things? Can I submit incomplete games to Apple for approval?

Not to rain on your parade but nudity actually wasn't allowed. On Iphone Game Network they released an article about how the devs lied about them taking it down due to traffic and it actually was Apple who took it offline. Though that wasn't really the point of the post and your app will probably be fine.

Pretty clever marketing from them. But yeah, our game doesn't even have humans in it, and we can always change the blood color to green. Should be enough for Germany as well.

XD iDrop Dead will be better than the flash incarnations, and all the levels will be new and big! Anyway, I'm sorry, we are not that fast. But if you guys buy our games enough we can quit our dayjobs and work full time on our own projects! Late July it's going to be...
